As creative individuals it is often in our DNA to tackle world issues and our medium becomes our way of communicating the solution to our viewers. But how do we know that we've succeeded in our quest? How do we measure success or failure? In translating successfully what we had inside our head?
Feedback is one way for us to gather that all important response from the viewer. But how often do we stop to tell the artist how we actually feel about their work. Comments like 'So amazing!!!' 'Looks awesome!' 'ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!' flood the best works in our gallery. As good as that is for the artist, it often tells the artist little about how he could move forward, what really worked in his piece and what he could leave out for next time. In this version of Friday Feature we have a little take away for you: next time you see an 'Awesome' piece, take a moment to tell the artist how it made you feel! If you've landed on a good artist they will in return take the time to appreciate your honesty.
For the Features this week we've picked a selection of pieces for you to express your feelings. Reach out to these artists and pour your heart out. We've done this for years as a group now and the response has always been heartfelt.
Love can heal a broken heart and sometimes breathe life into a dead soul. A giant who was badly bruised and discarded by life felt a glimmer of hope by this lovely little kid who just wanted someone to read her a story from her favourite book. This concept shows us how sometimes we feel like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders and we definitely scale up our issues. All we really want is to be child like again and re-connet with our inner self. Tiesei must be a part-time magician to have the powers to paint emotions this good.
This concept shows a perfect harmony between the modern and the old. Taking a beautiful scenery and placing a large futuristic beast of a spaceport. Definitely makes one think about why they would build such a thing in an area which looks like its hidden from the rest of the world. Are those the guards looking out for this top secret space port or just explorers who stumbled upon a big government mystery file. Whatever the case, the concept is very carefully yet loosely executed with lots of experimental elements by polosatkin
Look through the woods, go on! Don’t be scared. What lies ahead is a Dark story which Krikhey has nicely crafted. The close feel of this piece really sends a chill down my spine and makes me step back and gather my courage. The beauty surrounding the flower makes me a little curious but not everything that glitters is gold.
Before you comment or judge this piece, go take a look at the linked video. This is a silent victory celebrated by a group of artists who came together and made this short. There is just a simple, old, rusty plane going through different scenes but if you watch the short you’ll eventually come to the conclusion that it might as well just be a person because we all go though the ups and downs that this plane goes through.
She belongs to the nature and has a story to tell. The repeating shapes in her costume definitely hints to her origins and her eyes are definitely dying for you to ask her a question. This emotion filled character is waiting, the perfect finish on her skin by groovequai and a limited colour palette tells us in an instance that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
